An inspired collection of contemplative poetry written over the last few years, whose stimulating themes run to subjects of philosophy, faith and spirituality. Also included is a provocative selection of small stories, written in the highly interesting modern form of micro-fiction prose.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
“Two-Cornered Rooms” by Paul F. Lenzi is a lovely and spiritually moving collection of poetry and Haiku, also featuring some 75 word micro fiction that was quite impressive.
This collection offers the reader a chance to stop and think, not just about the varied subject matter, but about the proper word choice to convey the author’s intent and meaning. This author is the type of poet that can make you feel what he felt whilst writing by his perfect usage of language. He did not favour repeat phrases as some poets do, and each poem was separate from the others, making this a wonderful journey for the reader.
There are poems that will make you reminisce and those that will make you laugh out loud. I enjoyed the way he arranged his work in this book. Some thoughtful poems followed one or two lighthearted observations and then a poem of faith and spirituality, and so forth. It was easy to read and enjoyable.
I also quite liked the micro-fiction. His ability to tell a complete story in so few words is a testament to how creative Mr. Lenzi is as an author. I’m looking forward to reading more of his work.
If you are a fan of poetry and like collections that will make you feel something, this is a book that you should not miss.
